As a rising sophomore, Butler Area right-handed pitcher/infielder Connor Ollio spent the month of August with the USA Baseball 15U National Team, the last week and a half in Aguascalientes, Mexico at the COPABE "AA" Pan Am Championships. He played in seven of the team's nine games (11 AB, 7 H, 6 R, 8 RBI, 2B, 3B, 3 BB, HBP, 0 K), while winning both of his starts on the mound (3.86 ERA, 11.2 IP, 11 H, 5 BB, 5 K, .229 opponents average, 62% strikes).

Ollio was one of only two participants from north of the Mason-Dixon line and the first from Pennsylvania to earn a spot on the roster since current Wake Forest freshman John Aiello (Germantown Academy) did so in 2012.

As a freshman for the Golden Tornado, Ollio hit .300 (15-50) and showed good plate discipline along with contact ability, logging four walks against four strikeouts. On the mound, he posted a line of 15.1 innings, 19 hits, four walks, and 13 strikeouts.
